Jewish-Israeli Community Culture

Creating a Community: Jewish–Israeli–Community Culture

Jewish culture is, in its very essence, communal. The holidays, various social commandments (mitzvot), life ceremonies etc. are all based on the assumption that the community plays an important role in creating identity and meaning, as well as in its members’ daily lives.

The alienation that characterizes the post-modernist era leads many to look to community life for meaning and a sense of belonging. Every community gains its strength from the close ties between its members and via a common core of values, symbols, and ceremonies. Such a nucleus provides community members with a sense of joint meaning and reinforce the ties between them.

This area of activity aims to create and develop diverse models of Jewish-Israeli community culture, thereby enabling Jewish-Israeli culture to become a meaningful part of the lives of Israelis coming from a range of sectors and communities.
